Covid-19 pandemic: Number of home quarantine increasing, need more public cooperation, says DC Sankar

Mysuru, May 30:- “Mysuru had 90 coronavirus cases. All of them got treated and discharged from the designated Covid-19 Government Hospital. Later, two new cases were found. One of them has recovered and discharged. Yesterday two, more new coronavirus cases were reported. The number of people in home quarantine is increasing. We will require public cooperation more,” said Deputy Commissioner Abhiram G Sankar.

He was speaking to media persons in the city on Saturday.

“One person who tested positive for coronavirus has come from Ireland. He came to the hospital from Bengaluru’s Kempgwoda International Airport by ambulance. He tested positive for coronavirus while he was in a private hospital. He has now been shifted to Victoria Hospital in Bengaluru as he needs super-speciality care. But the coronavirus case is registered in Mysuru district,” he said.

“Some people have already been tested. We are awaiting their results. There are more than 500 people in home quarantine. If people in facilitated quarantine test negative for coronavirus after a week, they can be in home quarantine for the next week. This has reduced the numbers in institutional quarantine. People in rural areas have to be careful. If anyone in quarantine goes out, it should be brought to the notice of the administration. As lockdown is being slowly lifted, we have to be more careful,” he added.

“Central government guidelines will come tomorrow. It is not necessary to implement it 100% in the state. The state government will take decisions based on the guidelines. May be it will take 2 days,” he said. (MR/KS)
